FRESH: ‘Be Like Stars’ – Chris Too Far

Chris Too Far returns with “Be Like Stars”


UK newcomer Chris Too Far follows up his debut single, “Mess Around“, with a powerful new single, “Be Like Stars” and he is just getting better and better!

The new song begins quietly and solidly but builds to a full-on electro-synth chorus with a massive POW! Ass-kicking and with easily memorable lyrics perfect for a big audience to join with.

“Be Like Stars” is a bittersweet song about a break up after the initial upset, when you finally realise that it’s probably for the best and necessary for you both to continue growing as people. So it’s saying to yourself and your partner “be free I’m here if you ever need me but I want us both to reach our full potentials without getting in each-others way like we have been doing whilst together”.

With two storming anthems begind him, Yorkshire born Christopher Bradley Atkinson – aka Chris Too Far – WILL be making big waves in 2021 as his music reaches out father and wider. Currently undiscovered yet soon to be known for his deeply personal story telling through his range of songs of infatuating first love to crippling heartbreak to mental rehabilitation and finally forgiveness. With each new song, Chris will to be telling us the story of a past serious relationship, chapter by chapter. He dives into the mental aspect of what occurs inside a young man’s brain head over heels in love to then being abandoned by that person.

Chris says: “My goal is to produce a guide to first love and heartbreak; my whole experience is documented in this first batch of music. People can listen to my story in chronological order and use it as a satnav to find their way back to themselves. I want to show men especially (I can only write from a dude’s perspective) that shit like this happens all the time so you aren’t alone, we all get the same horrible self-loathing thoughts at times so let’s be there for one another and talk more instead of being too proud to discuss openly how we feel. Listen to my tunes where I cathartically let loose of ALL my feelings and see that if I can come out the other side wiser + more confident than ever, you can also!”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
